What customers say about "Features"
Garmin Approach S10 Lightweight GPS Golf Watch
  • This watch gives accurate distances and advances to the next hole flawlessly.
  • This one has the right features and price for me, so I bought it for myself for Christmas.
  • The battery lasted all day, and assuming it continues to have good battery life, I don't think I will ever need more uptime than it offers.
  • I charge the watch before I play so I've not experienced any issue with battery life.
  • Charges more easily than my last yardage watch and charge last much longer
Garmin Approach S20 GPS Golf Watch with Step Tracking, Preloaded Courses, Midnight Teal
  • With a full charge, battery will last for more than two rounds. In just watch mode, it lasts a least a week.
  • The battery life is very good, in non-GPS mode it lasts over a week, using the GPS it easily copes with two rounds and would probably go three.
  • Step counter seems accurate and the Garmin Connect app that goes with the watch is actually pretty cool.
  • Alerts you to messages on smartphone, when connected via Bluetooth
  • Works well on the golf courses. I like the sunrise and sunset information
